Just because Christmas is a holiday filled with traditions doesn't mean your holiday decorations have to be traditional. Yes, people everywhere are finding new creative ways to deck their halls with DIY Christmas trees and we can't get enough.

Some of the beauties on the list were actually made with pine, while other people had to construct their trees from whatever was laying around. No matter what materials their creators used they are all unique and some, even hilarious. From elaborate tree space portals to rope climbing trees this list shows off the best and the brightest designs from Christmas enthusiasts who like to think outside the box. Scroll down below to check out all the awesome creations and don't forget to upvote your favs.
